One year, seven months and three days after the Panthers lost Super Bowl 50 to the Denver Broncos, the Panthers return to the scene of the crime. This time it is not for a ring, but rather to set a tone. A tone for a season ahead is at stake at Levi Stadium this Sunday. Will the Panthers be on point and start out hot orRead More
Behold Panthers fans, it's time to start putting in all that vacation time you have been saving to spend in Charlotte and on the road with the Roaring Riot. Or you can plan ahead when to use that sick time. Whatever your style, the 2016 regular season schedule is here!
Of course we knew early Thursday afternoon that the Panthers would be traveling to Denver for season kickoff and Super Bowl 50 rematch for Thursday night football. Shortly after we learned the final game of the season would take place in Tampa Bay on New Years day. Other rumors had us at home against Arizona in week eight, and in Seattle for Sunday Night Football in week 13 in a potentially big NFC show down just before the playoffs. Well, here's how it all panned out.
Do you remember where you were when the Carolina Panthers drafted wide receiver Devin Funchess? I do! I was at Cowfish, this great restaurant that serves both sushi and burgers. I was sitting near a TV because I didn't want to miss the NFL Draft. I was about to bite into my delicious burger covered with BBQ and then I heard that the Panthers were on the clock. They traded up from no. 57 overall to the 41st pick to select..... wide receiver Devin Funchess out of Michigan University.Read More
The 2015 NFL season is finally here! It has been a long seven months since the New England Patriots played the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX. But we can finally look past that and focus on this season (I hope). The Carolina Panthers have had a very interesting offseason filled with injuries, releases, and acquisitions. If the Panthers want to three-peat as NFC South Champions, they will need some of their players to step up.
Who are those players that will need to have a strong season for the Panthers to have success?Read More
The three defensive ends that are battling for a starting spot opposite of Charles Johnson are Kony Ealy, Mario Addison, and Wes Horton. Kony Ealy was drafted in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft, and is viewed as having lots of potential. Mario Addison is in his fifth season and finished last season with 6.5 sacks. But who is Wes Horton?Read More
I was able to go down to Spartanburg, South Carolina this past weekend for the Carolina Panthers training camp. It was hot but it didn't seem to matter to the large crowd. The whole training camp experience was fun, and the Carolina Panthers are looking like a team that could three-peat as NFC South Champions.
Before I left for training camp I asked the fans what they wanted to know about their favorite team. So I went down there and got them answers.Read More
Training camp is almost here and the 2015 NFL season is so close that I can almost taste it. Going into the 2015 season the Carolina Panthers will be defending their NFC South title for the second year in a row. Do other teams in the NFC South stand a chance at preventing the Panthers from three-repeating? This question might not get answered until the regular season, but some other questions will be answered during training camp.Read More
The NFC South struggled last season in the fantasy football department. There were only six players that finished the 2014 season (Drew Brees, Matt Ryan, Julio Jones, Mike Evans, and Greg Olsen) ranked in the top 10 for their positions overall. Drew Brees took a small step back and was the sixth ranked quarterback with 302.98 fantasy points. Greg Olsen had a great year and was the 4th ranked tight end. The biggest surprise was the positive impact of rookie wide receivers Kelvin Benjamin, and Mike Evans.
Now that the NFL Draft is over which NFC South rookies will have the biggest fantasy football impact?Read More
Having the opportunity to sign a contract extension that is worth up to $100 million is pretty remarkable. Only a few players in the NFL have reached this “$100 million status”. But with big contracts, comes big expectations.Read More
One of the biggest needs going into this offseason for the Carolina Panthers was the offensive tackle position. So what did the Carolina Panthers do to try to improve Cam Newton's blindside? They chose not to resign OT Byron Bell and instead signed OT Michel Oher. Bell was not resigned because he was one of the worst tackles in the league last season, but he still found a new home with the Tennessee Titans. Oher was released from the Titans because of his injury and poor play. That was a very interesting swap.Read More
The Carolina Panthers finished the 2014-15 NFL Season 7-8-1 and lost to Seattle Seahawks in the NFL Playoffs. Even though the season ended in a somewhat high note by winning the NFC South, the Seahawks let the Panthers know that they still needed to improve to reach the next level. What were some questions that needed to be answered this offseason for the Panthers?Read More
The Carolina Panthers passing offense was ranked in the bottom half of the league in 2014. They averaged only 219.4 passing yards per game and 21.2 points per game. The Panthers passing offense struggled because of the lack of quality receivers, and the ever reliable running game. The offense being one dimensional wasn't a problem until the Panthers lost to the Seattle Seahawks 31-17 in in the NFC Divisional Playoff game.Read More
The 2015 NFL draft is almost here! I am so glad the draft is here because there are tons of predictions out there for the Carolina Panthers, and I want to know who is going to be right. I really want the Panthers to draft an offensive lineman but I am not sure if that is going to happen. Experts seem to be having a disagreement on who the Panthers will be selecting in the first round.Read More
I was on Twitter the other day talking with other Panthers fans talking about the upcoming NFL Draft. We were specifically talking about how players with injuries, and character issues might drop in the draft. In the past those players may not have been be picked in the first few rounds, but teams ended up taking a risk by drafting those “troubled” players later on.Read More
The poll results are in and 52% of you said that Cam Newton is the greatest quarterback all-time for the Carolina Panthers. Jake Delhomme was a close second with 46% and Kerry Collins only received 2% of the votes.Read More
